“Great for running and sledding!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

I go here frequently to run.....there are many paths to take...some running right next to the river! There is a man made hill for sledding and a great fire pit for parents to keep warm while kids enjoy.

“Historic and relaxing”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Side Cut has access to Maumee River on one side of the park and hills and valleys on the other. There are great photo sites and a small lodge for day meetings. The canal locks are well documented and interesting to view. The walking trails are well maintained.

“The Place to picnic, hike, take scenic photos”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

I come here several times a year to capture scenic photographs, and just to relax while walking around.

I love the historic Boat Locks which take a person back in time, to understand how boats couldn't navigate the Maumee River without them.

Also a hidden jewel for taking SENIOR Portraits, and colorful family portraits. You can catch a sunset over a creek there as well. .."if" you get there in time!

2 parks in one split by River Road, this park has year round activity now. A few years ago, they made a nice sized hill for snow sledding/boarding, and polished the hill by putting in a very large, cozy open fire pit to tee-warm yourself. The only thing missing in the winter

“Lovely park along the river”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Side Cut park is geared towards families with plenty of open spaces for picnics along with a playground. Most times you'll find the trails filled with joggers, walkers, cyclists, etc. The view of the Maumee river is wonderful and in the spring, it is a popular place for Walleye fishermen. The wildflowers in mid to late May are my personal favorite thing about this park. Tons of deer, sometimes you'll see a few dozen.
